Sankey diagrams of woody biomass flows in the EU-28

Bioeconomy

Sankey diagrams of woody biomass flows in the EU-28 for the years 2009 to 2015 can be downloaded from this page. Starting from primary sources of wood, removals or imports, wood can either feed wood processing industries for the manufacturing of wood-based products, or be used for energy production. The woody material transferred across the different transformation steps and among the different subsectors determines complex biomass flows, illustrated with the Sankey diagrams, where the width of the arrows is proportional to the magnitude of the flow in question.
